The exhibition features artwork created by the glass artist Paula Meninato. Through the optical qualities of paint on glass, Persistent Memories depicts the human toll behind the criminalization of Latin Americans and the human suffering caused by wars and immigration policies. Some of the artworks are created during an artist residency at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center and made specifically for this installation. The exhibition also features videos to further emphasize the concepts of disappearance and invisibility.
